(Subsitituted Preview) -


#1

Why does this happen on some fonts (see screenshot attached) .

We have old T1 copies of fonts, which I am removing when we have identical copies of T1 or OT fonts. Would like to know as much about this as possible as I am our agencies font Guru and hoping once I cleanse our server we will have fewer crashes in Illustrator. This error message happens on some T1 fonts but not all.

Greetings,

Older PostScript Type 1 fonts do not have all of the glyphs that modern versions the same fonts have.

If the preview text that you have selected uses a character that the font does not have a glyph for, Universal Type Client will generate a substitute preview instead.
